At Fakhoury Medical and Chiropractic Center, we utilize therapeutic massage in conjunction with other modalities including chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, acupuncture, and more. Combined with other natural treatment options, we have found massage to be an integral part of the patients overall plan.
